Today was a much better day emotionally than I have had in a long time. Yesterday I went to church and had lunch with my friend that used to be my boss and my friend but is now 100% my friend. Did you get all of that?
We talked about the issue that has been plaguing me for a while now, of which she has firsthand experience, and it was great to get a new perspective. I faced today with a renewed outlook and it was such a relief to not have to carry something that I just don't have any control over right now. All I can be is me. All I can do is the right thing. You know what? I can handle that. I also now know that I am not alone in this and that gives me strength.
I have also been informed that I have two new siblings. I've been adopted by my friend/former boss/now 100% friend and her partner. He and I share a similar, difficult background. It is cool to know that we are all family now.
Another thing that has seriously helped my mood and energy level is the addition of Vitamin D to my daily routine. I am taking 5000 IUs a day and it has helped me tremendously with eradicating the effects of the seasonal affective disorder. Thanks, once again, Princess Dieter! Any other supplements I should take? I am all ears because the last two you suggested are working out quite well.
